“Only by imparting to all children the knowledge that is commonly possessed by successful citizens can all children gain the possibility of success—“success” understood as becoming a person with autonomy, who commands respect, has a communal voice that can write and speak effectively to strangers, can earn a good living, and can contribute to a wider community.” – E. D. Hirsch, Jr., Why Knowledge Matters (2016)

Principal’s Message

Sean Lane is the Principal of Summit Classical School. Before coming to Summit, she spent 17 years at St. Anselm’s Abbey, an independent school in Washington, D.C., where she served as a teacher, Lead Advisor for sixth grade, and the Dean of Students. During her tenure there, Sean pioneered innovative programs, expanded enrollment, improved academic performance, and mentored students through extracurriculars.

Sean believes it is important to foster an environment where students feel safe, happy, and are constantly learning. She believes faculty must also take advantage of teachable moments outside of the classroom! Her goal is to inspire a shared vision with faculty, and she believes with the students at the forefront of every school decision and everyone working toward common goals, anything is possible!

Originally from Washington, D.C., Sean studied economics and business administration at Florida A&M, graphic design at the Art Institute of Atlanta, and earned a master’s degree in educational leadership from Trinity Washington University. In her spare time, she can be found spending time with family and friends, playing the drums and guitar, golfing, and enjoying live music.

On behalf of the Summit Classical Charter School, we would like to thank you for your continued support over the last several years. However, due to circumstances, the board has decided to close the school and pursue other options. Each parent or guardian currently enrolled in Summit should have or will receive a letter from Charter Institute at Erskine providing additional clarity and further opportunities for your children.

Thanks again for your support.
